Choosing a camera or cameras for a personal trip is always a tricky decision.

With an arsenal of cameras at my disposal, my usual goto setup would be film based with a Leica M6 and a 35mm lens. For film stock I would probably have opted for black & white with Ilford HP5.

But this time, for a quick family break to Barcelona I wanted something a little different, so borrowed a Fuji X100S.

The physical size and the fixed lens are perfect for an everyday carry about camera, but for me (or my shooting style) the menu system is a little too complicated (with far too much choice) and didn’t feel particularly intuitive.

I loved the results, the images are great but maybe I just need a little more time with it.
